Transitional pastor needed

Trinity Lutheran Church is seeking a Transitional Pastor to assist us in our mission to “Serve Christ our Lord by welcoming, equipping and sending disciples”.  We have been blessed to be shepherded by a husband and wife pastorate team for the past 24 years and as one of our pastors is retiring, we have opportunity to reflect on and evaluate our ministry.  This 6–12 month position would serve our congregation by evaluating, reviewing and visioning with us as we prepare to call a new pastor.  


 Duties include:

  • Leading careful examination of ministries, staffing, policies and congregational vitality for the purpose of making recommendations to Church Council.  
  • Assisting with visioning for God’s direction for this congregation.  This includes moving through the transition from a long-term husband/wife pastorate team. 
  • Attending meetings and working along side the various ministries with emphases on evaluation and revitalization. 
  • Regularly praying for this congregation and its ministries.
  • Aiding in congregational worship and programming, which may include preaching, as well as sharing in pastoral responsibilities.
